Brekford Deploys Seventh Red Light Camera in New Rochelle, New York
Brekford Technology Enables City to Target at-Risk Traffic Intersections
/EINPresswire.com/ -- HANOVER, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/16 -- Brekford Corp. (OTCQX: BFDI), a leading public safety and security technology service provider of automated traffic safety enforcement ("ATSE") solutions, parking and traffic violation systems, and an end-to-end suite of technology solutions for public safety vehicles and mobile workers, announced today the deployment of a seventh red light enforcement system in New Rochelle, New York. The City has approval from the State of New York to install photo enforcement systems at 12 intersections, with approximately 40 approaches. Brekford will continue to work with New Rochelle representatives to provide complete coverage in the coming months.
"Brekford is very pleased to be working with the New Rochelle Police Department to improve traffic and pedestrian safety by reducing red light running and traffic crashes," stated Rod Hillman, President and COO of Brekford. "The City selected our advanced non-intrusive BRAVA Red Light Enforcement System, featuring high resolution violation capture, to place at high risk intersections with minimal impact on City resources. Since inception of the program earlier this year, the system has operated very efficiently and we have seen a reduction in red light running at intersections where cameras have been deployed. Brekford has worked diligently to ensure complete turnkey support for a fully transparent ATSE red light program in New Rochelle. We have operated speed enforcement programs for several years now, and are pleased with the initial success of our first red light program. Our objective for the remainder of this year is to promote this capability to other prospective clients throughout the U.S. and Latin America."
Communities face heavy costs from traffic accidents at red light intersections, and issuing fines by automated enforcement is a fair and objective way to remind drivers that they are required by law to stop at red lights. According to estimates by the American Automobile Association, a single fatal crash costs society over $6 million, and includes costs to victims, families, government, businesses and taxpayers. Independent studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show that red light safety cameras lower red-light running violations up to 90% and fatalities by 24%.
Brekford invests heavily in research and development to deliver advanced traffic safety enforcement solutions and reliable service to its customers. Brekford's range of technologies include its P2S Speed Enforcement System, Safety Zone SpeedAlert Radar Signs, BRAVA Red Light Enforcement System, and back office iP360 Violation Processing and Evidence Management Suite. We develop each solution to yield better results through innovative designs and manufacturing in the U.S., high quality engineering and components, flexible and easy-to-use tools, and proven chain of custody.
